When this report broke, many of us on the right were not surprised. Despite all the lip service and golf outings, many conservatives knew that Lindsey Graham was not a true supporter of President Trump and his agenda. In fact, there was always a sneaking suspicion that he was actively working to undermine his efforts.
For many, the proof was in the pudding when he turned tail and ceded the election to Joe Biden when there were still countless legal battles and irregularities to contest. He voiced his support and then essentially stabbed President Trump in the back at the most pivotal time of the election.
Today RINO Lindsey Graham said President Trump needs to stop “re-litigating 2020, by pushing fraud claims” if he wants to run again in ‘24.
“The 2020 election is over for me,” he said.
This 🤡 sure does think he holds power over Trump..
I L0ATHE THIS SWAMP RIN0!

Well, it turns out that Graham is also a fan of Joe Biden. Audio has leaked of conservation he was having while in lockdown during the January 6th events. The Daily Mail breaks it down for us:
Lindsey Graham can be heard praising Joe Biden in newly surfaced audio as police worked to clear the Capitol during the January 6 riot.
The Republican senator speculated that the attack would unite Americans.
‘We will actually come out of this thing stronger. Moments like this reset,’ a somber Graham said from a secure location, according to audio obtained by reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns and aired on CNN.
‘It’ll take a while. People will calm down. People will [say] “I don’t want to be associated with that.” This is a group within a group. What this does, it’ll be a rallying effect for a while, where the country says, “We’re better than this.”‘

Graham then moves the topic of the conversation toward the election of Joe Biden. He actually praises him in a way.
Graham, 66, goes on to praise Biden. ‘He’ll be maybe the best person to have, right? I mean, how mad can you get at Joe Biden?’
Those words turn out to be very misguided. Granted it’s not a glowing endorsement, it’s kind of a backhand compliment but it is a deep betrayal of conservatives. Here’s how quickly Lindsey Graham switched sides. Just the night before he was seen on the news still putting his support behind the President. After this leaked audio was captured, he takes to the floor and essentially betrays Trump.
The lawmaker from South Carolina gave an impassioned speech on the floor when Congress resumed moments later, telling his colleagues to ‘count me out’ of Trump world.
During his presidency, Trump still tried hard to work with Graham for the good of the American people. In spite of Graham’s constant undercutting and back channeling, the President still reached over to try and work together.
This behavior is nothing new for conservatives that have been following his career for over a decade. Ever the opportunist, Graham demonstrates a lack of moral fortitude in the face of opportunity and self-promotion. After all of that, with President Trump gaining momentum, he’s started trying to make nice with 45.
Since then however, he’s returned to praising Trump for what he did during his administration and has even been spotted golfing with the ex-president at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
How interesting. It’s hard to tell the difference between the persona this man presents to the media and his true feelings and actions. I think we’ve all come to the conclusion that he lacks the spine to stand for anything other than self-interest. He’s just gotten worse at hiding it.
But Lindsey hasn’t the intestinal fortitude to say it to everyone.
Mr. Graham is COWARD owned by TFG.

Most of us are not surprised. Pardon the language but this is the way most conservatives view these events.
Wow, there’s an audio tape of Lindsey Graham disparaging trump?
You mean he’s exactly the kind of double taking, bullshitting, say one thing and do another, pilot fishing, ball washing cuck we already knew him to be?
Yeah, that IS shocking! 🙄

After just a couple of years into his term, Biden’s leadership has led the nation into very perilous times. From nominating an unqualified, radical left Supreme Court judge to the soft response against violence aimed at places of worship in light of the Roe V. Wade decision to the funneling of $40 billion dollars to Ukraine.
It’s not all Lindsey Grahams’ fault and this isn’t anything surprising. But shouldn’t there be some way to hold this man accountable for his behavior? Is there a real conservative in his home state that we could get behind?
